Location Very dirty and old, , not possible to use internet, due to very slow speed
Guy at front was helpful getting us clean sheets and pillowcases after we complained. Dirty sheets, dirty room, smelly, gross.
Welcome and hospitality. Ocean was amazing and there was nothing he would not do for us to make our stay happy. inadequate parking for the hotel guests.
The space, and confort. With only a couple of blocks walk to the beach, the location is great. Corner store for last minute needs. Restaurant is a few steps away. take that morning walk to feel the ocean breeze. One of the best economical places i have stayed in. Will be back soon. Liked everything, only thing that kinda bother us was the actual people on the room next to our. So cant hold the hotel responsible for this. Guy found girl cheating or something, hell broke lose at about 3am. Could hear all the fighting and screams, wanted to go and punch someone so i could get back to sleep.
The staff was friendly and as accommodating as possible and there weren't bed bugs. Although the immediate neighbors seemed quainte, the city felt a little shady. That obviously can't be helped, but I would have liked to have known that coming in. The parking was extremely tight and precarious. The outside of the rooms looked cozy, like a little nook of college dorms, but once inside all the warm, cozy feelings went away. Our room smelled like mildewy, moldy fruit. The fridge gave out an awful smell when it was opened. There was a used q-tip under the bed skirt. I never took my shoes off because the carpet looked so questionable. I was so grossed out I wouldn't let my baby crawl anywhere except on the bed. The towels in the bathroom were not completely clean and some were damp. There is no AC and the windows were open and unable to be closed. Because of that, my husband had a hard time going to sleep because of the neighbors and noise keeping him awake as well as being concerned for our safety. I have never given a review online before this, but felt this deserved one since most of the others are so positive. I feel bad saying unfavorable things because I don't want to harm a non-chain, privately owned business, especially when the manager on duty was so nice. However, this place was definitely not worth the money and I would never stay there again.
We enjoyed the location near Cabrillo Beach and Point Fermin Park. We could also walk to the Korean Bell Tower. In the next block are two diners serving breakfast and lunch to many locals. The Pacific Diner and The Lighthouse Cafe, which serves home cooking for dinners as well. The motel is on the main bus route. We missed having a coffee maker in our room but quickly adjusted by picking up early coffee at the diner. There was a microwave and a refrigerator in our room and if we had requested a coffeemaker, the hospitable staff would probably have supplied one.
